Conclave: Part Four

September 17th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen

Well, it looks as if Fr. McKenna has been eliminated. Now it is down to Fr. Antinarelli and Fr. Bonsignore. Who could have guessed? The next (last?) session is posted to your right. I would deeply appreciate it if we made this decisive, because we are looking for a 2/3 majority, plus 1. If it’s a deadlock, we will start a little debate as to who should be bishop and why.

Happy voting.

  1. Can one be bishop and the other coadjutor with right of succession?

  2. Gen says:

    If necessary, yes. I have a feeling that we won't come anywhere near a 67% majority either way.

  3. Dr. K says:

    It's literally neck and neck. 11-10 Fr. A in the lead as of 1:30. Two very solid candidates.

    I am dreaming if this should be real we will all be hired to work for the winner. Imagine ourselves (the cleansing fire bloggers on Buffalo road.) I am applying for press secreatary so I can watch their faces as I announce the immediate changes. I won't wear an alb, but I sure will wear a smile. I will serve Father and the rest of the Cleansing fire bloggers Chocolate Bob Bons with their coffee every afternoon.

    Oh my look at me!!. I made a poem.
    Bon Bons for Father Bonsignore. I can't think of a food that rhymes with Aintinarelli.

    Sorry for the sillyness but the thought of either of them as Bishop makes me sooo happy!!

    Best quote. Ever.

  6. Sister – you're a poet and didn't even know it. Can I be diocesan historian and archivist?

    How about lemoncello for Father A?

    Chocolates or coffee for Father B.

    Love it Sr Emily! 🙂

    As long as we are dreaming… can I be Director of Re-Opening Our Schools? I can't think of anything that would be make me happier than telling Fr. Wheeland at Holy Cross that he could re-open his school doors and welcome the kids back in!

  8. Sister Emily says:

    CHOIR, Of course you can be historian. No point in anyone else applying . No one could light a candle to what you have done right here in the past few weeks!!

  9. If I had my way, Fr. Antinarelli would be Bishop and Frs. Mcmahon & Bonsignore would serve as his auxiliary bishops. I jus happened upon this website a few weeks ago and it is awesome!! Keep up the excelent work!!

  10. Dr. K says:

    Thanks Chris! We hope you've added Cleansing Fire to your bookmarks. You'll find tons of good DoR information here, updated anywhere from 2-6 (or more) times each day.

    I agree 100% with your fantasy leadership team.

    ~Dr. K

  11. Sister Emily says:

    CHRIS, That too would be a great ride.

  12. Gen says:

    After the "conclave," I will designate titles of various people here discussed. What should I be, Sr Emily?

  13. Sister Emily says:

    Our Knight in CHARMING honor of course!

  14. As your user name starts with "gen", you should be vicar general.

  15. Sister E – Lemoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur which comes from Southern Italy. Traditionally it is made from lemon from Sorrento. It not sour, has a bright yellow color (like Big Bird)and is sweet and very lemony. Sometimes it is spelt Limoncello.

  16. All of you rock!!! I can't shake the feeeling that God is calling me to be a priest. I have tried 2x with this diocese and was let go. It is coming on the 2 year anniversary where I gave everything I had to get into major seminary. I was informed that I was "Emotionally shutdown." by Frs. Tim Horan, Mike Conboy, & Carol Dady, if that doesn't turn the knife. I had been serving as an intern at St. Charles Borromeo in Greece during that summer. I so much want to be a part of the restoration that is definitely on the horizon for this diocese. It sounds crazy, but I can really sense it coming on the horizon.

  17. BTW…Thank you, Sr. Emily, Dr. K for the kind welcome!! Are any of you on Facebook?

  18. Dr. K says:

    Fr. A has pulled back to within 1 after being down 5 earlier today. Looks like we may be heading for the great debate, as neither is looking close to achieving a 2/3 majority.

    ~Dr. K

    What in the world does Mrs. Carol Dady know about the Priesthood?

    I am calling Bishop Clark this morning and telling him that I a man and I would like to start interviewing 18 year old young women, who are interested in becoming a Sister of Mercy or Sister of Saint Joseph.

  20. Sister Emily says:

    ANNON. 5:57AM.

    If you want him to accept your offer you might want to tell him your interviewing will not be limited to Sisters of mercy and Sisters of St. Joseph they can also apply for the Priesthood.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!
    I found myself in a house of spirits this afternoon looking for a nice merlot (Of course for medicinal purpose) and the holy spirit led me to whole different isle. There was lemoncello!! I am for sure bringing it to the Cleansing Fire Christmas party. Thanks for the advise.

    Sister Emily

  22. S'ter…was it the holy spirit or the HOly Spirit that led you to that different aisle? *wink wink*

    Your mentioning Christmas party made me remember that the holy season of Christmas is not far off and how people, especially companies and marketers, almost never use the word Christmas anymore and use Holiday instead.

    I inquire to the manager whether their store will say "Merry Christmas" back to me when I say it first. If they don't, NO SALE!!

    If I have to I will make them say "Merry Christmas" or I can raise quite a ruckus. This politically correct stuff has gone way to far. We should have dealt with this 20 years ago.

    I'm glad you found the lemoncello and I hope your enjoy it.
